One Bed in Chelsea Plucked Straight Out of Paris
Welcome home to this beautiful Parisian sanctuary on one of the most desirable blocks in the heart of Chelsea. On the corner of 9th Avenue and 23rd Street, apartment 4E at 405 West 23rd has been completely gut renovated and redesigned by Andre Mellone at Studio Mellone with not one detail overlooked or expense spared.
From the large entry foyer with an oversized coat closet, enter the southern- and eastern-facing corner living room. Custom built-ins span one side of the living room, while a designated dining area which comfortably seats 10 flanks the other. Just off the dining area, the kitchen features black Calacatta marble, a Miele appliance package complete with dishwasher, Waterworks fixtures, and custom cabinetry.
The windowed bathroom-directly off the foyer and facing south-features a double sink marble vanity, Waterworks fixtures, and elegant deep blue subway tile. While the oversized bedroom has a huge walk-in closet, two large windows looking south onto 23rd Street, and comfortably fits a king bed with bedside tables and room to spare.
The apartment also features hardwood floors throughout, nine oversized casement windows, and through-wall air conditioning. Pre-war details have been maintained through the coffered ceilings and trim detailing. All of these features create a perfectly modern apartment with an aura of timeless sophistication.
405 West 23rd Street in the London Terrace Towers is an iconic pre-war elevator coop with full-time doorman, an on-site resident manager, swimming pool, health club (with saunas & steam room), parking garage, roof deck, courtyard gardens, laundry, bike room, and storage. Gas, electric, pool, steam room, and sauna, are all included in the maintenance, while the gym and the parking garage are managed by a third party. Co-purchasing, gifting, and pied-a-terre are all allowed. Subletting is allowed after one year of ownership. The 2% flip tax is split evenly between the buyer and the seller.
